College Writing Workshop

Program Description

Three Weeks

This course, open to those of all writing abilities, seeks to prepare students for the new, unique challenges they will face in college writing assignments. Sequenced exercises in reading and writing will help students gain more confidence and versatility as writers. Students will learn rhetorical and critical thinking skills and practice flexible strategies that they will be able to apply in a variety of college-level writing situations.

Fundamental aspects of writing that will be covered include (but are not limited to) the following.

  • How can I craft clear, efficient sentences, and how can I make sure my sentences “flow” together well?   
  • How can I smoothly, actively incorporate sources into my writing?
  • How can I analyze and/or synthesize information or points of view to produce my own original ideas?            
  • How does genre shape writing?  
  • How can I compose effective special-function sections (like an introduction or conclusion) in my writing?
  • How can I optimize my approach to the writing process? 

Course will run Monday - Thursday for approximately two hours in the morning and two hours in the afternoon. Exact class times to be determined.
